Dare to be different! As the wildebeest migration proceeds through the Mara the herds graze on the move creating a low envelope of dust that seems to settle around head-height. One beastie dared to

Thanks, Peter!

 

Here's a grizzly bear trying to catch salmon. If you look closely you can see the red tops of the salmon swimming right in front of the bear.

That's how close they are and how easy they are to see. Not so easy for the bears to catch, though. :)

Two great action images from opposite sides of the globe!

The detail on the hapless salmon is remarkable.

Such fine wildlife photography brightens up Safaritalk.

Thank you for posting them!

Sometimes it more fun to shoot the audience rather than the animals and/or action ongoing...

I wonder what they all are so excited about? As the topic is "A picture a day" we have to wait for answer...

My picture for the day....

 

Recalling our maiden safari back in July 2013, when we entered Tarangire national park in Tanzania. that was when we fell in love with Africa - with its spacious landscape, its glorious wildlife, its beautiful trees, its awesome sunsets and sunrises, and the feeling of being home..... unedited Panasonic DMZ FZ200.

Love those magnificent baobabs and zebra.

An ideal post for your 2000th post and joining the Order of the Pith.

We've all loved your intelligent comments, fine photos, and overall good-humored wisdom.

Please do enjoy India!

@@theplainswanderer you captured so well the rather quizzical look on my favourite African bird.

Congratulations on your Pith!

I have always enjoyed reading your positive contributions, and have appreciated your interest in a wide range of places.

I think you make a great contribution to Safaritalk - and I look forward to the next 2000 posts!

His dentist could ask for no finer view!

Remarkable!

The pupil of the eye is so clearly visible.

You must have been in the closest possible position...without actually being a dental x-ray technician.

Thank you!

Hyrax Sporting a Leaf



Photographed at 9:11 am on 2 May, 2015 at Great Rift Valley Overlook, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.


ISO 6400, 1/800 sec., f/11, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


*****************************************************************************************************


At the Great Rift Valley Overlook, there's a stone retaining wall where visitors gather to have their portraits taken with the magnificent scenery as a backdrop.


Were they to peer over the retaining wall and gaze downwards, they's see several small mammal species, including this hyrax, insouciantly sporting a tiny leaf cap.

Leopard Hills Suite in Sabi Sands, South Africa



Photographed at 4:23 pm on 18 January, 2016 at Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.


ISO 200, 1/1600 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


*****************************************************************************************************


During my 9 day/8 night stay at Leopard Hills, I was assigned to Suite #8, which is isolated from the other seven suites, is adjacent to the dining area, and has the most unobstructed view of the waterhole.


The plunge pool and outdoor shower are on the left. Both bushbuck and nyala grazed below the terrace in the early morning. Vervet monkeys were daily visitors. It was my “home away from home”.

I fully agree.

How nice it would have been to have been able to bring it back home to serve as my new abode!

After two exceptional visits, I'm certain that it's a lodge which regularly offers superb wildlife sightings on all game drives, not to mention the outstanding accommodations, amenities and cuisine.

I know why @@Tdgraves enjoyed Leopard Hills. It's not at all commercialized or ‘canned’ but rather is as natural and unplanned as anything I've experienced in Meru or Samburu in Kenya.

Should your resistance weaken...GO FOR IT!

@@Tom Kellie I can only agree with that, one of my favourite lodges in all of South Africa!
